The music boss broke his silence on Twitter last night and confessed he hadn’t been fully versef on how to use the electric bike before taking to the road.

Simon wrote on Twitter: ” Some good advice…

“If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time.

“I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages..”

He added in another message: “And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors. Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone Simon.”

Simon fell and broke his back after trying out a powerful new electric bike — and accidentally pulling a wheelie.

His son Eric, six, and his partner Lauren Silverman’s teenage lad Adam watched in horror as Simon, 60, fell backwards and smashed down onto a concrete floor at his Los Angeles home.

A source said: “He was testing out his new bike with Eric and Adam and the power of it surprised him a bit.
